InputSource, of course.  And I was talking about an extension
(subclass) of InputSource specific to DOM parsing, not changing
(extending) InputSource.  Sorry for the confusion.

Another option is to change InputSource to support a single
additional pair of methods: get/setSourceObject(Object o).
The meaning of this would be specific to the particular parser
and the run-time type of o.

Essentially because the value of getProperty("dom-node") is a Node,
whereas the argument to setProperty("dom-node", doc) needs to be a
Document.  This is an ugly asymmetry, even though the compiler is
unable to check the type.  Adding a new property
("dom-document") would be better, but not better than overloading
InputSource, which is already meant for the job of specifying
the source.
